Yesterday, the NGO ANIDAN raised 35,000 euros thanks to a private sale of Dehesa de los Canónigos wine Solideo Special Edition Godfather of Harvest 2015, in an auction held yesterday at the El Gran Escenario restaurant in the Wanda Metropolitano.
The Ribera del Duero winery Dehesa de los Canónigos donated a barrel of its Solideo wine to Miguel Ángel Gil Marín in the 2015 harvest, when the CEO of Atlético de Madrid was named Harvest Godfather. Five years later, and once the wine is ready for sale, the Sanz Cid Family has delivered the bottled wine to the businessman, who is responsible for choosing which non-profit organization or social movement the proceeds of its sale go to.
The chosen non-profit organization has been ANIDAN, which aims to cover the basic needs of children in Kenya, as well as their education and development.
During the act, Miguel Ángel Gil Marín highlighted that “both the San Cid family and the athletic family have a lot in common, especially when it comes to roots, knowing where we come from, the culture of effort, humility, never stopping dreaming, believing and working for get something bigger.”
